Peter Hedegaard, born in 1951, passing far too soon in 2007, started his adult life as a painter, but found himself in 1972 working for W.O. Larsen. During his tenure with the venerable company, he studied with the likes of Teddy Knudsen and Hans "Former" Nielsen. While Peter was an unquestioned master of the Danish pipe design aesthetic, and his ability to deftly execute form a bit off the shape chart is in ample evidence with this wonderful straight saddle-Billiard. The bowl features a mighty fine combination of cross and flame birdseye, and is unsmoked. Quite the find.
